Woman beats three-year-old girl to death for vomitting

According to a story by Punchng, a 21-year-old woman, Rebecca Bassey, (pictured above) has been arrested for allegedly beating her husband’s three-year-old niece, Deborah Bassey, to death.

Rebecca is accused of beating Deborah at their home in Ijaiye Ojokoro, Lagos on July 22nd because the little girl vomited and defecated on herself.

Continue to read the full report from Punch...

 

A police source told PUNCH Metro:

“The victim (Deborah) lost her mother in 2010. Early this year, Deborah’s father was evicted from his home and he decided to send Deborah and his second child to go and stay with his brother, Vincent, until he settles down. Deborah and her nine-year-old sister were living with Vincent and his wife, Rebecca, in a one-room apartment at Powerline, Jankara, Ijaiye Ojokoro. However, Rebecca was always maltreating the two children.”

According to police investigations, on the day of the incident, Deborah woke up around 5.30am with a high temperature.
The three-year-old girl was said to have started vomiting and defecating soon after.
This was said to have angered Rebecca, who instead of administering treatment to the child, decided to beat her up.

A police source said, “In the process of beating the girl, the suspect pushed her and she fell, hitting her head against the edge of a wooden chair in the room.”

PUNCH Metro learnt that the victim started to bleed from the head. Some neighbours rushed her to Ahmadiyya Hospital, where she was referred to Orile Agege General Hospital where she later died.

A woman leader in the area, Kudirat Ogunseyi, was said to have reported the matter to Ijaye Ojokoro Police Division after which the suspect was arrested.

Some neighbours, in their statements at the police station, described the suspect as a hot-tempered woman, who was fond of beating the children.

“The way that woman beats up the children was very worrying to the extent that the landlord had threatened to evict them,” one of the statements reads.

Vincent  told the police that he was not present when his wife beat his niece to death.

“I was not at home when the incident happened. I am a photographer during   daytime  but I   work as a vigilante  group member.  So I hardly sleep at home,” he said.

The suspect however said she did not kill the victim deliberately. She said she only pushed Deborah and she hit her head against the chair.

 “I am a housewife and I have a 10-month-old baby. I did not mean to kill her (Deborah). I only pushed her because she vomited and defecated on the floor. I was only trying to correct her. It was not deliberate. I am a mother too and I know how I would feel if my son was killed,” she said.

It was learnt that the matter had been transferred to the State Criminal Investigation Department, Yaba.

A source at the SCID said the police were waiting for autopsy. He added that if other wounds were found on  other parts of the victim’s body, it would prove that the victim was indeed tortured before her death.

I doubt if this woman is truly a mother cos if she was, she will be filled wit worry @ the sight of the little girl's mess rather than anger. Another tail of an unfulfilled destiny. May God rest the soul of the poor girl

Illiteracy!!! This is why it is important to educate women. The little girl had a high temperature. If this woman had sense, she would have known that the toddler was ill and rather than "correct" her, would have taken her to the hospital. Our women need education, ASAP!!!

What a mother!This is the height of callousness.People tend to forget that a measure of whatever they melt out to other people's children is sticking-out somewhere waiting for their own wards.I implore the police to swing into action and thus prevail adequate justice.May the gentle girl's departed soul rest well in the bosom of the Almighty.

The woman action really verify the claim by neighbor that she hot-tempered. This is the result even though she had good intention for not killing her. She just have to face the justice and learn the lesson of her life. Rest in peace little girl.

She deserves to spend the rest of her miserable life in prison. Nigerian women are very wicked and evil beating up poor defenseless kids. Many times this stupid women call it discipline, while wounding and maiming these children. Last year i visited nigeria and witnessed a mother slapping her 10 year old 3 times for misplacing a 100 naira note. I quickly intervained by giving the mom 500 naira to stop her before she maims her son. To me that was wicked and evil. Your mothers call beating up a child discipline, i call it CHILD ABUSE!!! Remember mothers children do not stay little for ever. Violence begot Violence.

If ur child is sick, u ll pet n cuddle her, when she vomitted u ll use ur own wrapper to clean her mouth, but another wonan's child did the same and u pushed her to her death.

Anonymous said...

My thoughts exactly she must have been frustrated.Women outthere pls let's learn to be tolerant and patient towards children. I know its not easy esp if the child is not yours but that is why we are women and God has embedded in us that silent strength. Patience is key and you will see everything will turn out fine. RIP Debby.

Alright good people of Nigeria...
I've heard and seen all you've posted.

Why not pray 4 God's mercy on her. I'm not saying what she did was right coz she should have taken care of the baby, but we don't know what next we do or say that will ruin the life of someone close to us.

Pls pardon this girl; her parents didnt treat her right during her time; her child now was as a result of her wayward lifestyle.
Pls lets give her a reason to live. Pls... She even has an infant in her hands... Pls... Yes! She should be killed,... She shd rot in jail/hell... But pls lets not condem her yet; she's gat a life to live; since she didnt learn her lessons the easy way, now it's time 4 her to learn it the hard way.

I know a life has been lost, but I beg of you all, pls find a place in ur heart 2 forgive her...

(with tears in my eyes)
Rebecca, why? Why have u done this to ur family? Ur late father won't be smiling wherever he is; ur brothers and sisters will now live wt d stigma of being a brother/sister to a murderer...
Ur mother will now live a more miserabl life...

I pray you learn and live correctly.
God be with you and see you through.

And as 4d little Deb, may ur innocent soul rest in the bossom of the Lord... Amen.

Ah! Youth and Children of our time, listen to your parents, and be a good friend of God...
Parents, Teachers, Pastors, Imams, etc you all still have a great role to play in child development - talk to them, advise them, pray for them all the time...
